Never mind South Africa in 2010, David Beckham might still be around for the 2014 World Cup! At least that is the view of the AC Milan club doctor who gave the former England captain his medical at his new club.
Milan’s chief club doctor, Jean-Pierre Meerseeman, said:
“Beckham could go on for another five or six years. His cardiovascular readings are very good. His basic fitness is excellent. All he needs to do now is to alter his training programme slightly.”
Meerseeman is well versed in handling the fitness requirenments of aging players as the Milan side is one of the oldest squads in top level football.
